[REBOL] Re: What is Mathematics?

From: larry:ecotope at: 3-Jul-2001 18:31

Hi Bard, Yes, I agree. SICP is one of my favorite programming books, possibly the best one in print. In addition, being based on the symbolic language Scheme, it is particulary appropriate for REBOL, which is in many ways similar to Scheme. Thanks for drawing folks attention to it. As you noted in a subsequent post the correct link is For those interested in recent activities of the co-inventor (with Guy Lewis Steele) of Scheme, there is an April 2, 2001 video lecture by Gerald Sussman, discussing his "big picture" view of programming at Toward the end, he discusses his new book The Structure and Interpretation of Classical Mechanics which uses Scheme to formalize thinking about advanced mechanics. There are also lectures by Stallman, Parmenter, and others. Cheers -Larry
